Facial Discomfort
I have had a discomfort on the left side of my face (cheek).  I have had it for two months now.  It comes and goes.  It does not affect my daily activities, and it is not a constant pain.  It does irritate my left eye sometimes, making it watery.  I had a cat scan of the sinuses and a brain MRI, which show nothing.  I researched trigeminal nerve, but I do not have excruciating pain and it does not hurt when I touch my face.  I researched Bells Palsy, but there is no numbness or paralysis.  Also researched teeth issues, but I do not have root canals or cavities.  I am 40 year old male.  Also ruled out MS.  What else could it be?

Hi Steve,

Sounds like you've had a bunch of tests already.  What are your doctors saying?  

There are a variety of facial pain diseases.  My suggestion would be to find a Facial Pain specialist -- these are docs that deal with facial pain patients on a daily basis.  You can usually find one at a large teaching hospital in the nearest big city.

Let us know what you find out -- your story may help someone else here on the website.

Take care,
Nancy
